About the LCD Monitor
The LCD monitor is produced with extremely high-precision manufacturing
techniques. More than 99.99% of the pixels operate to specification. Less
than 0.01% of the pixels may occasionally misfire or appear as red or black
dots. This has no effect on the recorded image and does not constitute a
malfunction.
Video Format
Please set the camera’s video signal format to the one used in your region
before using it with a TV monitor (p. 128).
Charging the Date/Time Battery
• The camera has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery that maintains the
date, time and other camera settings. This battery recharges when the
main battery pack is inserted into the camera. When you first purchase the
camera, place a charged battery pack in it or use the AC adapter kit (sold
separately) for at least 4 hours to charge the date/time battery. It will
charge even when the camera power is set to Off.
• If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, it
means that the date/time battery charge is depleted. Recharge it as
described above.

12
Preventing Malfunctions
Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
Never place the camera in close proximity to electric motors or other
equipment generating strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong
magnetic fields may cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.
Avoid Condensation Related Problems
Moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold temperatures may
cause condensation (water droplets) to form on its external and internal
surfaces. You can avoid this by placing the equipment in an airtight,
resealable plastic bag and letting it adjust to temperature changes slowly
before removing it from the bag.
If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
Stop using the camera immediately if you detect condensation. Continued
use may damage the equipment. Remove the SD card, battery pack or
compact power adapter from the camera and wait until the moisture
evaporates completely before resuming use.
Extended Storage
When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove the
battery pack and store the equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera for
extended periods with a battery pack installed will run down the battery
pack and may damage the camera. The date, time and other camera settings
may reset to default settings if the battery pack has been removed for more
than three weeks. Follow the instructions in this guide to reset the desired
settings.

to green when the charge is complete.
• After charging, unplug the battery charger
and remove the battery pack.
To protect the battery pack and prolong its life, do not charge it for
longer than 24 hours continuously.
18
Handling Precautions
Preparing the Camera
• Since this is a lithium ion battery pack, you need not completely
discharge it before recharging. It can be recharged at any point.
However, since the maximum number of charge cycles is
approximately 300 times (battery life), you are recommended to
charge the battery pack after having discharged it completely to
prolong battery life.
• It takes approximately 95 minutes to fully charge the battery pack
from a fully discharged state (based on Canon’s testing standard).
Charging it within a temperature range of 5° to 40 °C (41° to 104 °F)
is recommended.
• Charge times may vary according to the ambient temperature and
the battery pack’s charge state.
• See Battery Capacity (p. 145).
• You may hear a noise during charging. This is not a malfunction.
zKeep the battery pack terminals (
) clean at all times. Dirty
terminals may cause poor contact between the battery pack and camera.
Polish the terminals with a tissue or a dry cloth before charging or using
the battery pack.
zDo not rapidly overturn or wave the battery charger around when it
contains the battery pack. The battery pack could fly out.
zAt low temperatures, battery pack performance may be reduced and the
low battery icon may appear earlier than usual. Under these conditions,
resuscitate the battery pack by warming it in a pocket immediately before
use. However, ensure that there are no metallic items in the pocket that
could cause a short circuit, such as a key holder, etc.
zDo not place anything, such as tablecloths, carpets, bedding or cushions,
on top of the battery charger while it is charging. Heat will build up and
could result in a fire.
zDo not charge batteries other than Battery Pack NB-3L in this charger.
zThe battery pack continues to discharge a minimal portion of its power
while installed in the camera, even with the power off, or in the charger.
This will shorten battery life.
19
zDo not allow any metal objects
Fig. A
Fig. B
such as key rings to touch the
and
terminals (Fig. A), as this
can damage the battery pack. To
carry the battery pack or store it
during periods of disuse, always
replace the terminal cover (Fig. B).
zEven charged battery packs
continue to discharge naturally.
You are advised to charge the
battery on the day of use, or one
day before, to ensure a full charge.
zSince storing a fully charged battery pack for long periods of time (about 1
year) can shorten its life cycle or affect performance, you are
recommended to use the battery pack in the camera until it is completely
discharged and to store it at normal temperature (23 °C/73 °F) or lower. If
you do not use the battery pack for long periods of time, charge it fully and
discharge it fully in the camera at least once a year before returning it to
storage.
zIf the performance of the battery pack diminishes substantially even when it
is fully charged, its life has been exceeded and it should be replaced.

back of the card. Do not touch the terminals with your hands or metal
objects.
z Do not peel away the original label on the SD card or cover it with another
label or sticker.
z When writing on the SD card, use a soft point pen (e.g. felt-tip pen). Using
a sharp point pen (e.g. ball-point pen) or pencil may damage the SD card or
corrupt the recorded data.
z Since some or all of the data recorded on the SD card may be corrupted or
erased by electrical noise, static electricity or card malfunction, making a
backup copy of important data is recommended.
z Moving an SD card rapidly between temperature extremes will cause
condensation to form in the card and lead to a malfunction. To avoid
condensation, place the SD card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it
into a different temperature zone and allow it to adjust slowly to the new
temperature.
z If condensation forms on the SD card, store it at room temperature until the
water droplets have evaporated naturally.
z Do not use or store SD cards in the following locations.
- Locations subject to dust or sand
- Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures

Histogram Function
The histogram is a graph that allows you to judge the brightness of the
shot image. The greater the bias toward the left in the graph, the darker
the image. The greater the bias toward the right, the brighter the image.
If the image is too dark, adjust the exposure compensation to a positive
value. Similarly, adjust the exposure compensation to a negative value
if the image is too bright (p. 78).

View Finder
Image Seen in Viewfinder vs. Recorded Image
Usually the recorded image is wider than the image seen in the
viewfinder. Confirm the actual image size with the LCD monitor.
The image recorded may differ from the image seen in the viewfinder
due to the distance between the viewfinder and lens (especially with
close-ups). If you use the viewfinder to take close-up shots, portions of
the close-up subject may not appear in the recorded image. Use the
LCD monitor when taking close-up shots.
About the Autofocus Function
This camera employs AiAF (artificial intelligence autofocus) technology
which uses a broad metering field to calculate the focal distance with
high precision. It delivers a crisp focus even when the photographic
subject is slightly off-center.
The AiAF function can be turned off so that the autofocus is metered from
a fixed AF frame at the center of the field (p. 76).

AF-assist Beam
• The AF-assist Beam will sometimes emit when the shutter button is
pressed halfway to assist focusing in certain conditions, i.e., dark
conditions.
• The AF-assist Beam can be turned off (p. 46).
For example, if animals are your subject, turn off the beam when
shooting in the dark to avoid startling them.
However, please keep in mind the following facts.
- Turning the AF-assist Beam off or shooting in dark places may
make it more difficult for the camera to focus.
- The red-eye reduction lamp may emit when the flash is set to
or
even if the AF-assist Beam is turned off.

Shooting
• The flash can be fired when the upper indicator beside the
viewfinder lights a steady orange after pressing the shutter button
halfway.
• The flash may take up to approximately 10 seconds to charge. The
recharging time will vary with such factors as the shooting
conditions and battery charge. Shots cannot be taken while the flash
is charging.
• The flash fires twice. The main flash follows a preparatory pre-flash.
The exposure reading obtained from the subject with the pre-flash is
used to set the optimal flash intensity for the main flash, which is
used to capture the image.
• When using the flash, be sure to shoot from at least 47 cm (1.5 ft.)
away from your subject for standard photography and at least 27 cm
(10.6 in.) for macro photography.
Red-eye Reduction
• Light reflecting back from eyes can make them appear red when the
flash is used in dark areas. Under these conditions, use the red-eye
reduction mode. For this mode to be effective, the subject must be
looking right at the red-eye reduction lamp. Try asking them to look
directly at the lamp. Even better results can be obtained by
increasing the lighting in indoor settings or approaching closer to
the subject.
• The shutter will not activate for approximately 1 second after the redeye reduction lamp fires in order to improve the effect (excluding
when using the quick shot function). If you want a more immediate
shutter response, set the flash to

Shooting Panoramic Images(Stitch Assist)
Stitch Assist can be used to shoot overlapping images that can later be
merged (stitched) to create one panoramic image on a computer.
Shooting
The overlapping seams of
several adjacent images
can be joined into a single
panoramic image.
To merge the images on a computer, use PhotoStitch, one of the
supplied programs.
Framing a Subject
The PhotoStitch program detects the overlapping portions of adjoining
images and merges them. When shooting, try to include a distinctive item
(landmark) in the overlapping portions.
• Compose each frame so that it overlaps 30 - 50% of the adjoining image. Try
to keep the vertical misalignment to less than 10% of the image height.
• Do not include moving items in the overlap.
• Do not try to stitch images that include both distant and close items.
These items may appear warped or doubled up in the merged image.
• Make the brightness in each image consistent. The final image will appear
unnatural if the contrast in brightness is too great.
• To shoot landscapes, swivel (pan) the camera around its own vertical axis.
• To shoot close-ups, slide the camera over the subject, keeping it parallel to
the subject as you move it.

• When the camera is held vertically to shoot, the Intelligent
Orientation sensor judges the upper end to be “up” and the lower
end to be “down.” It then regulates the optional white balance,
exposure and focus for vertical photography. This function operates
regardless of the On/Off status of the Auto Rotate function.
• When changing the camera’s orientation between the horizontal and
vertical positions, you may hear noise coming from the orientation
detection mechanism. This is not a malfunction.

card is inserted. New images recorded on SD cards with existing files
are assigned the next available number.

About File Numbers and Folder Numbers
Images are assigned file numbers from 0001 to 9900, and folders are
assigned folder numbers from 100 to 998 (Folder numbers cannot
contain 99 in the last two digits).
Folder numbers cannot contain 99 in the last two digits
Folder File Capacity
Each folder usually contains up to 100 images.
However, since images shot in continuous shooting and stitch assist
are always saved into the same folder, a folder may contain more than
100 images. The number of images may also exceed 100 if a folder
contains images copied from a computer or images shot with other
cameras. Please note, however, that the images in folders containing
2001 or more images cannot be played back in this camera.

Photo Tips and Information
Tip for Using the Self-timer
(p.64)
Normally the camera shakes a little when you press the shutter button.
Setting the self-timer to
delays the shutter release for 2 seconds and
allows the camera to stop shaking, thus preventing a blurred image.
Even better results can be obtained by placing the camera on a stable
surface or by using a tripod to shoot.
How to adjust the exposure
(p.78)
This camera automatically adjusts the exposure to shoot images with the
optimal brightness. However, recorded images may sometimes be brighter
or darker than the actual image depending on the shooting conditions. If
this happens, adjust the exposure compensation manually.
Underexposure
The whole recorded image is dark, which
makes white elements of the image appear
gray. Shooting bright subjects or in backlit
conditions may cause the image to be
underexposed. Adjust the exposure
compensation towards the + end.
Optimal Exposure
Photo Tips and Information
Overexposure
The whole recorded image is bright, which
makes black elements of the image appear gray.
Shooting dark subjects or in dark places may
cause the image to be overexposed. Adjust the
exposure compensation towards the - end.
149
ISO Speed
(p.85)
The ISO speed is the numeric representation of the camera’s sensitivity to
light. The higher the ISO speed, the higher the sensitivity. A high ISO speed
allows you to shoot images in dark indoor or outdoor conditions without a
flash and also helps prevent blurred images due to camera shake. This is
convenient when shooting images in places where flash photography is
prohibited. The ISO speed setting makes full use of the available light,
resulting in images that convey the feel of the place they were shot.
ISO 50 equivalent
ISO 400 equivalent
Advanced Technique for the Macro mode (p.60)
Macro mode can make unique images when used with the zoom function.
For example, shooting a flower at maximum wide angle in Macro mode
allows the camera to bring both the flower and the background into focus.
However, shooting at maximum telephoto can throw the background out of
focus to make the flower stand out.
